That's right, Crufts is back.

The world's biggest dog show has returned this year to celebrate its 125th anniversary.

Many contestants are far too important to walk

It's hard to believe we've been parading our canine pals around for more than a century...

But with the return of Crufts comes some unusual photos, which if anything, are the best bit.

From oddly-shaved poodles to pugs in fancy outfits, the contestants are a colourful bunch.

What an unusual hairstyle!

The current reigning champion is Knopa, a Scottish Terrier, so hopefuls are keen to bring the pup down a peg or two this year.

Each year, around 24,000 dogs take part in the four day competition.

Some of our favourite Crufts moments from over the years include one contestant stopping mid-agility course to poo, and the shocking hair scandal of 1998 when it was revealed more than 53 stone of doggy fluff would have to be removed from the arena after the event.
